Norman Conquest of Calabria

Calabria, Italy

At the very start of his reign, the Normans under Robert Guiscard completed the conquest of Byzantine Calabria, except for the territory around Bari, though a resurgence of interest in retaining Apulia occurred under his reign, and he appointed at least four catepans of Italy: Miriarch, Maruli, Sirianus, and Mabrica.
